[texts]Evaluation of a novel real-time PCR test based on the ssrA gene for the identification of group B streptococci in vaginal swabs. (Volume 9) - Wernecke, Martina
This article is from BMC Infectious Diseases, volume 9.AbstractBackground: Despite the implementation of prevention guidelines, early-onset group B streptococci (GBS) disease remains a cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Strategies to identify women who are at risk of transmitting GBS to their infant and the administration of intrapartum antibiotics have greatly reduced the incidence of neonatal GBS disease...

[texts]Different bacterial gene expression patterns and attenuated host immune responses are associated with the evolution of low-level vancomycin resistance during persistent methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia. (Volume 8) - Howden, Benjamin P
This article is from BMC Microbiology, volume 8.AbstractBackground: Low-level vancomycin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus (vancomycin-intermediate S. aureus (VISA) and hetero-VISA [hVISA]) emerges during persistent infection and failed vancomycin therapy. Up-regulation of genes associated with the "cell wall stimulon" and mutations in the vraSR operon have both been implicated in the development of resistance, however the molecular mechanisms of resistance are not completely understood...

[texts]Novel transcriptional profile in wrist muscles from cerebral palsy patients. (Volume 2) - Smith, Lucas R
This article is from BMC Medical Genomics, volume 2.AbstractBackground: Cerebral palsy (CP) is an upper motor neuron disease that results in a progressive movement disorder. Secondary to the neurological insult, muscles from CP patients often become spastic. Spastic muscle is characterized by an increased resistance to stretch, but often develops the further complication of contracture which represents a prominent disability in children with CP...
[texts]Inhibition of complement C5a prevents breakdown of the blood-brain barrier and pituitary dysfunction in experimental sepsis. (Volume 13) - Flierl, Michael A
This article is from Critical Care, volume 13.AbstractIntroduction: Septic encephalopathy secondary to a breakdown of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a known complication of sepsis. However, its pathophysiology remains unclear. The present study investigated the effect of complement C5a blockade in preventing BBB damage and pituitary dysfunction during experimental sepsis. Methods: Using the standardised caecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model, Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with either neut...

[texts]Reduced neuronal cell death after experimental brain injury in mice lacking a functional alternative pathway of complement activation. (Volume 7) - Leinhase, Iris
This article is from BMC Neuroscience, volume 7.AbstractBackground: Neuroprotective strategies for prevention of the neuropathological sequelae of traumatic brain injury (TBI) have largely failed in translation to clinical treatment. Thus, there is a substantial need for further understanding the molecular mechanisms and pathways which lead to secondary neuronal cell death in the injured brain. The intracerebral activation of the complement cascade was shown to mediate inflammation and tissue de...

A trio for clarinet, English horn and banjo in the orwell temperament, the 22&31 regular temperament you can read about here: This is partly in the 9 note MOS of orwell, and partly explores farther, some of it becoming chromatic within the ambient tuning of the 53 equal division of the octave.

[audio]Trio for SoftSaturn, NebulaSing and TromBonehead - Gene Ward Smith
SoftSaturn, NebulaSing and TromBonehead are three soundfonts in one of Bree Gorton's collection of tiny but effective soundfonts called "Gort's DoubleDecker". They are the three voices in a Renaissance-style trio in the hobbit scale Guanyin[22], a 22-note scale in the rank three guanyin temperament tempering out 176/175 and 540/539, which is tuned to 111et. This is ostensibly an 11-limit scale, or at least it's an 11-limit hobbit, but 111 can handle much higher limits and a lot of the scale chor...

[audio]Choraled - Gene Ward Smith
This string quartet movement keeps trying to turn itself into a nice simple chorale, but keeps being distracted by various confusions and complexities. The chorale has been choraled. The piece is in a 26-note scale in the hemifamity, or 5120/5103 planar, 7-limit temperament. While the vibrato obscures hearing it, it is in the synch tuning, which is a good one for hemifamity.

[audio]Rachmaninoff Plays Blackjack - Gene Ward Smith
This is in the 21-note Blackjack scale of miracle temperament, which has attracted some notice of late. The tuning is 175 equal, and the melody was stolen from Sergei, and then folded, spindled, and mutilated. The rest is my fault.

[audio]The 45000 fingers of Dr. S - Gene Ward Smith
This piece, dating from 2003, is in TOP-tuned ennealimmal temperament; specifically Ennealimmal[54]. It goes no higher than 9-limit but still manages to sound rather aggressively xenharmonic.

[audio]Kotekant - Gene Ward Smith
Kotekan is a type of Balinese Gamelan music involving fast interlocking parts. In this style there are two independent parts called polos and sangsih, each of which fills in the gaps of the other to form a complete rhythmic texture. This piece does something similar, only in 72edo.

[texts]The Chebyshev Exponent - Gene Ward Smith
The analogy between the nth power function and the nth Chebyshev polynomial is pursued, leading to consideration of Chebyshev radicals as analogous to ordinary radicals and Chebyshev exponents to ordinary exponents, and the cosine and hyperbolic cosine as analogs of the exponential function. We then discuss solving polynomial equations in Chebyshev radicals, and apply this to the construction of unramified extensions of quadratic number fields.

[audio]High Oktone Elgar - Gene Ward Smith
This piece is in the eight-note Oktone scale of jove temperament, in the 202et tuning. This means it is the 202 equal tempering of the scale 1-15/14-60/49-5/4-10/7-3/2-12/7-7/4-2, leading to steps 0, 20, 59, 65, 104, 118, 157, 163, 202 of 202edo. It was a response to a proposal by Chris Vaisvil to further vary an Enigma Variations theme by converting it to a xenharmonic piece.

[audio]Dreyfus - Gene Ward Smith
In the movie The Pink Panther Strikes Again, an insane Inspector Dreyfus escapes and terrorizes the world before accidentally disintegrating himself with his own death ray. As he slowly dissappears, he plays the organ. This is my idea of music appropriate to such a condition; it is in the Octoid[72] scale, 72 notes out of 224-et. To quote from the film, "What is the price of one piano compared to the terrible crime that's been committed here?"

[audio]Night on Porcupine Mountain - Modest Mussorgsky and Gene Ward Smith
Mussorgky's Night on Bald Mountain isn't precisely found below; it has been "porcupinized" to a version in the porcupine temperament, tuned to 22 equal instead of 12 equal. Porcupine is the rank two ("linear") temperament which tempers out the porcupine comma, 250/243, instead of the 81/80 of meantone, and which divides the fourth into three equal parts, which define the generator. This can be tuned to three steps of 22 equal, which is what we've done here.

[audio]Music For Your Ears - Gene Ward Smith
If you exchange 3/2 with 5/3 and 7/4 with 10/7, leaving 2 and 5 fixed, the resulting involution map also interchanges 126/125 and 64/63. If 126/125 is tempered out on one side of the exchange and 64/63 on the other, a tempered but of music can be sent to another bit in another temperament. This piece, dating to 2002, moves from 46-et, which tempers out 126/125, to 27-et, which tempers out 64/63, and back again using this method.

[audio]Pianodactyl - Gene Ward Smith
Pianodactyl is rhythmically complex, with lots of irregular starts and stops, and the name of the piece refers to Rodan. Strangely enough, however, it has nothing whatever to do with math rock. The name refers to Rodan temperament, the 26-note MOS of which is used for the scale. The tuning is 87edo. I was tempted to switch tunings when Jacques Dudon posted his own 26-note tuning for Rodan, but equal temperaments are so convenient when using Scala, and 87 has the amazing property that it's exactl...
